 英語應用文寫作之便條寫法 (03/02)

便條是一種簡單的書信。雖然內容簡單,但卻有其獨特的風格。主要目的是為了盡快地把最新的信息、通知、要求或者活動的時間、地點轉告給對方。常見的便條有欠條、留言和請假條等。
  特點:
文內語言盡量通俗口語化,簡單扼要,直截了當,無需使用客套語言。In a roundabout way
  便條雖簡單,但中心務必突出,更要注明活動的時間及地點。
  便條不需郵寄,不用信封。通常請人代為轉交。有時可寫在留言板和留言簿上。
  基本寫作格式
  便條內容和類型不盡相同,可以靈活變通。但各類便條必須包括以下幾個基本要素;1)Date:便條日期2)Salutation:稱呼3)Body:正文4)Signature:署名
  樣例
  欠條;留下字據,表示欠某人某物。條據上需寫明錢物名稱和數量、立據人及日期。不得涂改。

Dear Li,
As the Spring Festival is drawing near, I’m very glad to invite you to come to a dinner party with several other friends of ours. I’m sure we will have a very happy time and enjoy ourselves thoroughly. Would you like to come on time at 5:00 p.m. today, to Room 6 of Lijing Hotel?
Yours always,

  請假條:往往指由于生病或特殊情況不能親自當面請假,用假條的形式告假。所以,請假條大多是病假條。可以自寫,也可請他人代寫。寫假條最重要的是說明原因和請假的期限。
